Perfectly executed back heel kick 100m try goes viral

In case you missed it, this video has gone viral in the last few days after it was shared on instagram. It features a bit of skill that we have probably all dreamed about doing at some point in our lives, but rarely has it even been executed so well. On the last play of the game.

Alan Knuckey of Charlton Park RFC decided to give it a go. As he described it, he looked to the sideline and asked a mate if he should try the back heel. His mate dared him to do it. He's tried it for 15 years but never got it right.

"This may be my finest ever rugby moment," he said, after perfectly executing the kick ahead, getting the bounce of the ball, beating the last man and racing away for an incredible try, while everyone in the stands could only laugh at the audacity of it all.

While questions have been asked about the standard of play and competitiveness of this particular match, we can all agree that it was very well done and funny to see. To date the video has over 2 million views on facebook alone, so there's that.
